Top Secret America

Top secret America has grown beyond control since 9/11: America's secret Army!

                               top secret America has grown beyond control since 9/11                                       

The results of this 2 year investigation is scary stuff! The top secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. They can continue to grow and do what they want even against us and no one is the wiser.

These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by the Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine. Reality is hidden and lost in our cumbersome bureaucracy and those benefiting will never let it shrink.

The investigation's other findings include some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies working on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in some 10,000 locations across the United States. There is no way of knowing size or costs because in buildings scope and structure it is growing every day and is multifaceted and hidden from others as the intelligence community can do what they want in the name of America and our security even if it is against our best interest. This is frightening!

An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1 1/2 times as many people as live in Washington, hold top secret security clearances. This does include the likes of cooks and janitors who work in top secret environments but there is no way to tell who is spying on who or working for who. This is a terrible out of control situation that boggles the mind.

In Washington and the surrounding area, 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings -- about 17 million square feet of space. That is only what we know and we don't even know that as no one has to tell us anything as long as they have the power and say they are doing it for us. I kid you not, this is scary!

Many security and intelligence agencies do the same work, creating redundancy and waste. For example, 51 federal organizations and military commands, operating in 15 U.S. cities, track the flow of money to and from terrorist networks. top secret America continues to grow out of control This was 2 years ago and we get worse and worse every day!

This will never be brought under control! Just how do we bring this under control? Short answer is we don't! The Government bureaucracy and intelligence agency knows they can always justify more redundancy as they did with the fabricated anthrax attacks to pass the Patriot Act facilitating this monster.

Our intelligence has become a mystery in itself purposely to hide numerous hidden agenda's. This is nation wide and in 10,000 US cities. This is crazy but I only see it continuing unabated whoever is President because right or wrong, regardless of the real reason, they can justify it. Damn, damn, damn, this is scary!

Don't get too paranoid. This was happening right after 911. Anyone who works at an airport or other transportation system is part of the system. All electronic communications (even this one) are now stored in one mega data base. There in lies the problem. There's so much information being stored that no one could possibly cull through it. Much like doing a google search for some specific piece of information and having 2 billion hits come up. They can now only get a rough picture by web chatter from certain chosen countries.
Eventually this will come to an end when they realize the system is so bloated and not very effective. We did after all see a cuts in the Homeland Security budget a year or so after it's implementation. What small town need several sets of level A hazardous material suits when the threat isn't there?

A lot of it is just show too. I mean what would the national guard do at an airport during a busy holiday travel season? Open fire with automatic weapons in a crowded airport? Bomb scares are so common anymore they don't even make the news. Sorry guy we blew up your toothpaste and pajamas in the back pack you left lying around. I know I worked at the airport during the years after 911.

You're exactly right about those precautions and you can add much of airport security to that show. We must have 100's of thousands of small airports and landing strips ignored.

You know, as far as Top secret America goes my only concern is how it will be and is misused.
